Denmark is set to deliver a $36 million humanitarian aid package to Ukraine, Danish Foreign Ministry announced on May 7.

The funds, equivalent to 250 million Danish kroner, will support the country's most vulnerable populations amid the ongoing Russian invasion.

"The humanitarian situation in Ukraine is grave," said Dan Jørgensen, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation.

"Millions are displaced, homes and hospitals have been destroyed, and essentials like water, heating, and electricity are in short supply."
